The Tai Po Theatre was a neighbourhood cinema in Tai Po Market, Tai Po in the New Territories.
The theatre opened to business at an unknown date before World War II. Tai Po is the official translation and Cantonese pronunciation of its Chinese name, its exact English name if any is unknown.
Its programme before World War II is unknown since it neither posted advertisements in the local Chinese language newspapers, nor had its name in the film guides. During the war years, only films censored by the Japanese Armies could be shown at the theatre. According to a news article published by a war years Chinese language newspaper, the theatre was in business as of 17th October, 1943.
It re-opened after the war, and showed selected films until its closure in 1957 or 1958.
